More About Concord Free Public Library
The stately brick building at the juncture of Main Street and Sudbury Road in the center of Concord, is the Concord Free Public Library. There's a statue of Ralph Waldo Emerson sculpted by Daniel Chester French -- the same artist who crafted the statue of Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. The main library contains a valuable Special Collections department in the climate-controlled basement with many documents related to transcendentalism and the American Revolution.
